  7. Lakers Late Night Replay vs. Phoenix

    Andy Kamenetzky

    According to Elton John, Saturday is a night where fighting is perfectly acceptable. However, the Lakers either didn't get the memo or don't much care for classic rock, because not much of a fight was put up against the Suns in Phoenix during a 125-1...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Brian and I have spent a lot of time recently debating the likelihood of Dwight Howard getting traded, whether to the Lakers or otherwise. I think he will be. Brian doesn't. However, we do agree if Howard relocates before the deadline, it'll come dow...
